The UFC Fight Night Greenville card has taken a hit because Markus Perez has suffered an injury and has been pulled from a bout against Deron Winn.

Perez made the announcement himself via Instagram:

Here is a translation of what Perez wrote, via Google Translate:

“GOOD NIGHT. ONLY TO LEAVE WARNING I INJURED MYSELF ON ONE OF MY TRAINS, TOMORROW WILL BE INTO SURGERY, SHOULD BE MAKING MY CAMP IN ATT, BUT FOR MAJOR REASONS I HAD TO STAY HERE UNTIL THE TIME. OBVIOUSLY MY JUNE FIGHT HAS BEEN CANCELED ... I APOLOGIZE ALL THAT WERE WAITING FOR THIS FIGHT !!! THANK YOU”

UFC officials are seeking a replacement opponent to fight Winn, who is expected to remain on the card at this time.

Winn (5-0-0) is going to be making his UFC debut in this bout and does so with an undefeated streak that has already lasted over two years. Winn competed on the inaugural Golden Boy MMA card, defeating UFC veteran Tom Lawlor by decision. Winn has picked up five victories as a professional MMA fighter and four of them came by way of KO/TKO.

UFC Fight Night Greenville takes place on Saturday, June 22 from the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina with Renato Moicano and Chan Sung Jung headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on ESPN+.
